A lovely icy blue bead accented in black and silver make this wonderful laying tool for needlepoint a beautiful addition to your stitching bag and help perfect your stitches at the same time. It is color coordinated with the Icy Blue and Black Beaded Scissor Fob https://www.etsy.com/listing/113029314 as shown in the last photo.
The laying tool (also called a stiletto) is a basic in any needlepointer's tool set. It allows one to keep threads flat, untwisted, and separated producing a smooth, professional stitch. (see the last photo) It can also be used in cross stitch and other forms of needle work where multiple strands of thread, or threads that can become twisted, are used. I've added a little glamour and glitz to this needlework standard. The photo of the pointed end is an actual photo of this laying tool.
A stiletto can also make life much easier for quilters! Quilters and anyone who sews use stilettos to ease fabric through the presser foot and to keep from getting caught up in the feed dogs. It can also be used to push out corners in the corners of sewn items.
The laying tool is approximately 7 inches (17.78 cm)The photo with the ruler shows an accurate measurement.
It can also be used as a shawl pin or hair stick, but be advised that the end is sharpened to a point. If you would like one WITHOUT a point, just contact me here. http://www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=TJBdesigns I'll be happy to make some for you.
